Vortex VMX-3T overview

  • 1Description

The VMX-3T Red Dot Sight Magnifier from Vortex is an optical accessory used to magnify the image transmitted by an unmagnified red dot sight. This secondary optic mounts directly behind the weapon's primary optic, allowing the shooter to co-witness standard AR-style iron sights. Additionally, the VMX-3T features windage and elevation correction that allows the shooter to align the magnifier with the red dot without affecting the impact point of the primary optic. When the extra 3x magnification is not required, an integrated quick-release flip mount allows the VMX-3T to be shifted aside so only the primary optic is visible.

Complementing the functionality of the VMX-3T magnifier is the image quality and durability needed for years of high-performance. The lens system is fully multicoated, allowing maximum transmission of available light from the primary optic. This magnifier's aluminum housing is finished with a corrosion-resistant hard coat and nitrogen-filled for weather-resistant operation. Combined with the long 3.25-inch eye relief and focusable objective lens, the VMX-3T is backed by Vortex's unconditional VIP Warranty.

    Vortex VMX-3T reviews

    VMX-3T Reflex Sight Magnifier is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious Optics I have looked for three months for the right optics for my Daniel Defense 300 blk and finally chose the Vortex brand for the value, quality and versatility. I am buying the quick release from A.R.M.S. to mount both the Sparc 2 and the 3x magnifier. This gives me the option of quickly removing the magnifier for days that I know I am strictly short range hunting or carry both on the rifle for those tree stand days or open areas that I might need to bring the target closer. I looked at 1-4 variable scopes and 1-6 but I think this combo is the best all around option. I am very pleased with Vortex and I think this is the best bang for the buck setup.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great magnifier, terrible rye relief. Like all other vortex products, the VMX-3t is great quality. The magnifier actually makes the dot on my red dot even crisper. In the futer I’d like to see them go to maybe a 4x magnification, though. However, the reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because of the terrible eye relief. I’m not sure why vortex would design this with 2” on eye relief but it almost makes it unusable. With it mounted as far back as possible I still have to stretch quite far to see through the magnifier as intended. I can completely collapsed the but stock and use it which helps but I still have to stretch to get to the magnifier and as well as the fact that I’m using a collapsed but stock. Big time cortex fan but was pretty disappointed with this one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great addition to any AR rifle! bought this to go behind an EOTech 516 on a 14.5 AR15. was hesitant at first and really debated spending the extra couple hundred $$$ to go with the EOTech G33. In the end, i am happy that i bought the vortex. If is a very clear site, with a very crisp image. Easily mounted and adjusted. Does not add a noticeable amount of weight either. My reason for a missing star is the lack of eye relief. I am not sure if it is a problem with all magnifiers, or just this one, but I have about 1.5-2 of eye relief at maximum, which makes shooting difficult at times. In the end, its minor, but worth noting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product but no lens covers I researched this quite a bit before buying so very satisfied with quality and function. It's a quality product and fit for purpose, particularly the mount. That is substantial and appears to be very well engineered. I'm giving it 4.5 stars due to it not coming with any front or rear lens caps. The literature may have mentioned this but I did not even consider it would come without that. Know some mount these so close to the red dot that a front cap might interfere, but come on Vortex, it's designed so you can use or not use it. You guys put out good quality stuff. I own two of your scopes. IMO it's a mistake to ship this without some sort of lens covering, even a cheap one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good quality , and reasonable priced I received this Vortex Vmx magnifier, was placed on my Daniel Defense AR 15 together with my Aimpoint ,the product looks good on my Rifle I feel like Im on swat team, this magnifier is a lot cheaper than any other product, and it really works with my Aimpoint Pro ,the target is now a lot closer in 100 yards, no problem zeroing it with my aimpoint, i did not even do anything , other than put it behind my aimpont , it works as advertised.I really like the idea that if you dont want to usemthe magnifier yoj can just flip it to the left and i will be ready to use my red dot.this ismindeed a very god product.i have this product now for 10 days k already used 900 rounds so far so good no problem with the attachment , did not get loose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the upgrade! I was using a Vortex red dot on it's own at the range and really enjoyed the accuracy it added to my shots. Added this magnification scope and instantly the experience was enhanced. 3x isn't crazy but it is the perfect amount of zoom for seeing exactly where your targets are being penetrated at any indoor range. I shoot left handed and after reading previous reviews of how people were complaining about it swinging to the left, it is easily changed to swing either way. Glad I tried this out because I wouldn't want to hit a range without it now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent optic for excellent price Mounted on AR15 directly behind Eotech 512. Was a little hesitant to add more weight to firearm, but it is not noticeable, especially considering the benefit it gives my aging eyesight. And what a clear sight! Have fired many rounds through it since mounting and am thrilled! One co-worker already ordered one for his AR after seeing mine, and several others leaning towards a purchase. Fantastic purchase I won't regret.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent magnifier I bought this to pair up with my red dot for 2 gun competitions for the occasional times we push out past 200yds. The 3x is the perfect optic for this, it’s clear glass coupled with decent eye relief makes it easy to reach out and ring the steel. My only issue is the flip release is on the wrong side, you don’t want it flipping to the left of you are running a red dot as it interferes with the sight picture, easy fix by flipping the mount around however, would like to see a mount in the future with no release button to make it easier to mount to flip left or right.
